Abstract


 

ABSTRACT

 

The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is beginning to be implemented in 2015. This means that in 2015 a single market is formed and a production-based entity is supported by a free flow of goods, services, investments, capital and skilled labor. Free flow of skilled labor can be interpreted that all ASEAN citizens can go in and out to find work without any obstacle from the intended country. One of the preparations of the Indonesian government in facing the AEC is to improve the quality of human resources through the Masterplan of Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesian Economic Development (MAEIE) in 2011-2025.Application of AEC should be viewed as a positive thing that is opening opportunity for job seekers in Indonesia for career abroad. Given the wide employment opportunities, it is expected that the Open Unemployment Rate (OUR) in Indonesia will decrease.Wilcoxon analysis is a non parametric statistical analysis used to compare two nominal data groups correlated. In this study, wilcoxon analysis was used to compare OUR in Indonesia before and after the AEC was applied. OUR data used is OUR data before applied by AEC and OUR data after applied by AEC. The results showed that there was no significant difference between the average of OUR in Indonesia before it was applied with average OUR in Indonesia after applied by AEC.

Keywords: Wilcoxon Analysis, The Open Unemployment Rate (OUR), ASEAN Economic  Community (AEC), Indonesia, Non Parametric Statistics.
